Can you please help me so that I can install the product. Your help will be highly appreciated. Thanks Manu xxxxx

Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am sorry that is a horrible situation. You will need to call Pinnacle to get a code that functions correctly. Here is the number.1-877-582-6735


Let them know what happened. They should be able to give you a code that functions.

One more thing if that fails you will need to arrange suport just in case here is another option here is the link:

I tried to call the number you passed on. They asked me to contact and ended with your website. So i am lost. Thanks for yourguidance. I cant seem to create new password. Can I use the one sent to me. Thanks again

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the Professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Professional to assist you right away with your Software issue, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

OK, well understand that it's not at all uncommon for these large software corporations to "mistakenly" send out media with missing numbers, keys and such.

Fortunately, since you actually purchased the software from Pinnacle/Corel, you should be able to retrieve the serial number or a replacement number from Pinnacle/Avid. However, you will likely have to "manually" go through support , and this may take some time (as in more than one day) to process.

Before you go through the manual option, please try this link just to CHECK to see if Pinnacle has any records of serial numbers tied to your email address. Here is the link. Put in your email address that you believe would most likely be tied to your account, and submit. Give the site time to respond. Note that if you received this "advertisement" through your registered mail with Pinnacle, then I would try using that email to check:

If you are ultimately unsuccessful with the automated option, then go the manual route.
The instructions are below for an unregistered product, and the support address to send the request to. The product is of course "unregistered' at this time because you don't yet have the serial to register it with.

If you did not register your product, we are sorry, but we cannot automatically generate you a new serial number.
Please submit a question to support (select "Serial Number" as Category) and attach a proof of purchase mentioning your product. We will then be happy to send you a new serial number.
No serial number will be sent without a valid proof of purchase.

Please rate with 3 stars/faces or more. We technicians only get a small % of your deposit, and RATING my answer is important as it is the only way we can get credit for helping you today. If you do not rate positive, I get nothing for my time helping you. Rating does NOT close the question, and I continue to help if needed even after you rate me positively. Tips are also greatly appreciated!

If you are still having trouble, or have other questions for me, then do not rate, but instead REPLY with the trouble you are having so I can continue to help you.


Thank You.
